LA Code: 

In Media Studies this year, we'll be looking primarily at films, and how to express ideas about society through their creation.

Students will gain a range of filmmaking skills (shot design, scriptwriting, camera operation, editing, sound recording... practical stuff like that), analyse a bunch of short and extended films, and design and create their own films throughout the year.

In 2.2, we'll continue with our focus on learning film design skills such as storyboarding and design, as well as leveling up in the use of cameras and gadgets to create a series of short films of our own.

We'll also continue a little bit with Sarah's Media/History/Social Studies experiment, which will be fun.

NOTE: A reasonable level of reading comprehension and written English is recommended for students enrolling in this course - it's very much a hybrid of Media and English at times!
